Synopsis for "Blade Versus the Avengers (Part III)"
The Avengers shoot at the vampires; however, Anthony blocks their bullets with his suit's force-fields. He then uses his hypnotism to paralyze the Avengers. But a detachment of S.H.I.E.L.D. soldiers find the vampires and begin shooting at them. This forces Anthony and his followers to retreat. A bitten Captain America is left behind for the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. to be sent back to the Triskelion for medical attention.
As Cap is brought in, Carol Danvers notices him and demands Nick Fury as to what has happened but is denied as she hasn't has "clearance". As Cap is on the operating table, Danvers and Black Widow observe the surgery behind a window. The two talk and Monica reveals to Danvers what she knows, and that both Gregory and Tony Stark are being called in. As Monica recounts of what she saw in the sewers, Blade has infiltrated the Triskelion.
Meanwhile at the Chrysler Building, Anthony and his vampires are resting there following the raid. Anthony blames the recent events on the Hulk for possessing the tracking device. Anthony uses his armor's sensors to detect a tracking device in the Hulk's chest. Anthony uses the power of his armor to remove it by hand from the Hulk's chest. The Hulk shows no sign of pain during the process choosing not to give Anthony the satisfaction. Anthony sternly tells Hulk that he will kill him if he spoils his plan.
Back at the Triskelion, Blade bypasses S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel to confront Steve Rogers as he knows that Rogers was deliberately left behind in order for him to convert everyone inside the Triskelion. He then pulls out a stake to kill Rogers; however, Rogers has finally awaken and, already a vampire, easily fights off Blade. He then bites Blade on the neck.
Vampire X has gotten his fangs into Captain America! Now, that the country’s biggest super hero is out of commission, the stakes are even higher. Will Blade be able to help the Avengers hunt creatures of the night? Or are the heroes being prepped for a vampire main course? It’s a bloody battle of fangs and flesh like only superstars MARK MILLAR (KICK-ASS) and STEVE DILLON (PUNISHERMAX) can tell!
